John: Storyteller, Interpreter, Evangelist is an accessible introduction to the Fourth Gospel. This book examines three aspects of John's Gospel: John's telling of the story of Jesus, his interpretation of Jesus for his readers, and his formulation of all of this into the Gospel of Jesus.
Carter surveys the central issues of this Gospel and engages with narrative and historical approaches, the two dominant methods used in interpreting John's Gospel. In addition, he introduces his readers to a consideration of the Gospel's negotiation of the Roman imperial world.
This book is written for college and seminary students, clergy seeking resources for teaching and preaching, and the laity, especially Bible study groups who like to engage a topic in some depth.
Warren Carter (PhD, Princeton Theological Seminary) is professor of New Testament at Brite Divinity School. He is the author many books, including Matthew: Storyteller, Interpreter, Evangelist; The Roman Empire and the New Testament; Matthew and Empire; and Matthew and the Margins.
